Craft School: American Folk Art-Making Workshops

LaVerne Kemp
Today, LaVerne’s award winning textiles have become iconic in Pittsburgh’s fiber arts community.  She’s known as an amazingly talented artist with a long history of quality art making. Her powerful artwork draws the viewer in through her adventurous use of color, pattern, motion and meaning. Over the years, LaVerne’s work has evolved from incredible  woven clothing to include jewelry, greeting cards,  wall hanging, sculptural dolls and home goods.

She explores and incorporates on and off loom weaving, handmade felt, traditional and Japanese Shibori dying techniques and beading to enhance her work.

Her work has been exhibited extensively across the US and featured multiple times in the Carroll Harris Simms National Black Art Competition  and Exhibition in Dallas and has multiple awards from The African American Art Exhibition at Actors Theater in Louisville.
